Over 60 organizations have expressed interest in becoming an Ohio Votes partner, and counting! Thanks to everyone who has already confirmed your participation as an Ohio Votes Partner!
OHVotes.org is LIVE!
First, I am excited to announce that our new voter portal is officially live! Check it out at www.OHVotes.org This mobile-friendly tool allows voters to easily check if they are properly registered to vote. If they aren’t, it guides the voter through the online registration process. If a voter is registered, but at risk of being purged, it prompts them to re-register.
OHVotes.org also allows voters to:
- Pledge to vote in the General Election
- Sign up to receive voting updates
- Find general voter information – where, when, and how they can vote
- Learn more about Ohio Votes
We’ve officially launched #WhyOhioVotes and encourage you to participate! It’s easy. Just have your GOTV helpers and your clients:
- Record a video up to 1 minute long stating why you plan to vote
- Upload it to social media and include #WhyOhioVotes
- Tag 3 friends to make their own video!
Here’s my video! I would love to see yours, so don’t be afraid to get the ball rolling at your organization!
Ohio Votes Literature
Three different versions of our 2018 voter empowerment posters will be available soon for free! If you would like to hang these posters at your agency, and receive other literature including voter pledge cards, voter education literature, and other swag fill out this Literature Order Form and we’ll mail it to your agency.
